We had the opportunity to show some of our NAOs at the Kunstareal Festival in Munich on May 10th, 2015 and in June 2017. In the demonstration 2015, in addition to dancing ("Tai-Chi-Bots"), we also presented their cognitive abilities, where one NAO had to recognize different shapes and draw them onto a piece of paper. In 2017, we also showed a Nao equipped with our robot skin and of course the dancing of Tai-Chi and Gangman-Style.
The next Kunstarealfestival is in July 2019. We will demonstrate the Naos at the Pinakothek der Moderne on Sunday, July 14.
